What A Taxing Week!
Conservatives are constantly harping about their desire for small local governance - except when they don’t. Too many examples this session to list them all but one of the whoppers is a proposed amendment to the WV constitution to give the Legislature more control over county property taxes with the intent to slash taxes paid by big, out of state corporations. The House is also debating an alternative to the Governor's income tax phase our that would devastate the state budget. More here on these and other updates from the 'Bad Idea Factory.' More

One Week to Go
Anti-protest bill HB 4615 (so-called protecting critical infrastructure) is now in Senate Judiciary. Calls to Chair Charles Trump are needed to ask him to ignore it and let it expire. Back-up messages to Judiciary members to vote no are also encouraged, if it does make the committee agenda. This is the bill that adds felonies and high fines tor those charged with civil disobedience (or even conspiracy to do so) at so-called "critical infrastructure" sites! More
